Ensure compliance to regulations and apply state of the art process safety systems within your facilities
Fire and explosion risks are present in most industries that handle combustible particular solids. Various regulations across the US and Europe make dust hazard analysis mandatory for companies in those industries. TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants’ licensed experts can provide you the most up-to-date and thorough assessments of your facility to ensure compliance and safety.
A Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) is a required assessment by NFPA 652 Standard on the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust and its related NFPA 654 Standard for the Prevention of Fire and Explosions from the Manufacturing, Processing, and Handling of Combustible Particulate Solids. ATEX directives 99/92/EC and Directive 94/9/EC also require dust hazards to be evaluated at facilities throughout Europe.
A DHA typically includes:
Fire and explosion risks are present in most industries that manufacture, generate or handle combustible particulate solids and there are many materials that can be explosive in dust form. Where these hazards are present, a DHA is required to identify, assess and mitigate the dangers of fires, deflagration, and explosions from combustible particulate solids.
